SANTA BARBARA CHAPTER
Holiday Party - information pending from James Connolly
Three members met at Dennis Ashly's shop on November 10, 2014 at 7:00 pm.
In the technical session, we discussed replacing hammers and wippens on a Steinway D, humidity control systems, replacing bridge pins, making a hinge pin out of a nail, cleaning out wippen spring slots with a pencil, and how VJ lube changes color over time. All members present received a free lifetime supply of freshly made VJ lube. (It helped that everyone is close to retirement age.)
For our program, Dennis showed us a Hamburg Steinway that he is doing extensive work on.
We did not have enough members present to discuss our annual Holiday Party. President Connolly will be making phone calls to find out when and where we should meet. Perhaps we should do this on a Skype call so a lot of back and forth is eliminated.
We adjourned at 8:59 pm.
